I e-mailed support about this a couple of weeks ago, and still haven't heard anything. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to respond?

I finally heard back from support. They're looking into it so hopefully I'll have something to report at duke point. They made it sounds like they will be working on a code fix for it.

Route to Speakers off: Waze meekly talks through the music without turning it down/pausing it, and is largely unintelligible.
Route to Speakers on: Waze pauses the music to... say nothing at all.
Prefer Bluetooth: Doesn't exist. Route to Speakers is the only thing in there.

This is one of the relatively few things other GPS apps seem to have a leg up on, so it's frustrating to see such minor imperfections chafing at the experience.


In my case, with "Route to speaker" off while streaming music, I can hear the directions just fine. But I also just hear a pause in the music with "route" turned on. If I turn off BT on my phone I can hear the directions just fine over the phone speaker.

Support said that the ticket I had opened with them had been submitted to deveolpment, but still no word.

I also have the sgs3 and originally had the "route to speaker" checked.
because I had my headphone jack plugged into the car stereo where i was streaming music.
i wanted waze to come out the phone speaker, while the streaming music routed out the headphone jack. this did NOT work.
no audio came out of the speaker, both waze and streaming app came out the headphone jack.

BUT i found out that having this set this way, every time waze would speak, it would cause my streaming app to stop streaming, and i had to restart the streaming app, which was very annoying on a long drive.

so i turned off/unchecked the route to speaker option and still waze and the streaming app would go out the headphone jack over the car's radio, however this time, the streaming app was NOT stopped or affected. so while this wasn't ideal, it did work and i was no longer annoyed by waze.

So my issue is somewhat similar, somewhat different but relates to Bluetooth and speaker so I thought I would put i there. I am using an iPhone 4S with a Jabra Tour Bluetooth speaker and this combo works great for phone calls and for streaming podcasts etc. When I use it with Waze, it sort of of works. Pretty much anytime I launch Waze and choose to Navigate somewhere it starts off working fine, let's go and all that happy stuff. Then at some point in the drive I just stop hearing turn by turn voice commands and even I stop navigating and restart, no luck, turn off and then back on the Tour speaker, no luck, but if I "switch off" and then come back in to Waze and resume navigation it starts up again with the voice prompts. The strange thing is sometimes it will go 5 minutes and then stop the voice commands, sometimes will go 30 minutes before I lose them. Also, I have tried to find a pattern, is it after a call, at a certain point in the route, etc and I can not find any correlation between the times that it stops working, it seems totally random. Has anyone else experienced anything like this with Bluetooth?
Just Wazin' through life and loving it!

Sound to Speaker / Bluetooth?

That function is amazing.
If you are listening radio de Voice allways Play. Even if the radio it's turned OFF.
It works like a phone call.

The only way for sound to come out of you car stereo from Waze (on Android anyway) is to have it as your Bluetooth media option on the car stereo. You cannot have Waze interrupt radio or CD operation on your car stereo. You either have to live with having the navigation directions come out of the phone's loudspeaker or streaming music from your phone with the Waze audio playing with it.

I know that it's worked for me on the previous beta that way. I don't think I tested the route to speaker option in the most current beta. What I usually do if I switch from listening to Google music to the radio is turn the Bluetooth off on the phone so it stops the streaming connection

The new beta version for android lowers media volume while giving directions
